While in Murray Wednesday after

to learn that he was building such a
nonportable home as he really is. All
the good lumler fiom the old house is
being worked Into the rough or inner
portlou only of the new one, and while
it is far from completion one can read
ily see the plans of the architect and
just about how they are to be carried
out. The new structure will be :?0x'J4

but has lived in Missouri since 1:4,
where her son, Ivan, was born in l:i."
The last time Mr. White received
word from his mother she was in the
enjoyment of excellent health for one
of her age, and he is expecting to have
a most enjoyable visit with her. She

Of Course It's Not Legal.
The Syracuse Journal complied with
the order of Secretary of State Galusha
and printed what it called a supple
ment containing the proposed consti
tutional amendment. This Is the
second supplement we have seen and
neither of them contained a single
line of reading matter but was tilled
wiin advertisements. That supple
ment Is not worth the paper on which
It Is printed and should have been
excluded from the malls. Every news
daper publisher knows that under the
law- that supplement could not have
been folded and sent out with the
regular edition, because It was not
what It purported to be. Nebraska
Any newspaper man, who is at all
posted knows that a supplement tilled
up only with advertising, and no read
ing matter cannot legally pass through
the malls. And the constitutional
amendment Is nothing more than an
advertisement paid for by the state.
Of course, if Nebraska has "got money
to burn," It is just as well to give it
to the newspapers, who favor the
wilyGalusha for re-f lection. This Is
why it was delayed, the secretary of
state wanted the amendment in those
papers only who favored his re-nomi
nation. Hut Nebraska can al'ord to
throw away l,ooo in this manner.
Tho taxpayers are the sufferers.
Rids were opened yesterday at the
ollice of the supervising architect of
the treasury department in Washing
ton for a site for the new govern
ment building to be erected in this
city. The site requires not less than
12i) by Rio feet in area, and the follow
ing are the bids opened and considered:
John Rauer and Feterltauen, cor
ner Vine and Seventh streets, SjJ.'O;
. Pearlman, Chris. Koehnke and S.IL
Shumaker, southeast corner Vine and
Sixth streets, $,s."0; A. E. Gass and
F. G. Frlcke, northeast corner Sixth
and Vine, $7,500: R. W. Scott, corner
Sixth and Granite, $.1,000; Charles C.
Parmele, northeast corner Seventh
and Main, $G,.r)00; August Gorder and

southwest corner Vine and Fifth,
l.soo: Nebraska Lighting company,
southwest corner Pearl and Sixth,
$l,.r)00; Anna Fitzgerald, northwest
corner Vine and Sixth, $7,000.
It will perhaps be some little time
before it will be known which site is
accepted, and it may be necessary for
the government to send a representa
tive here to decide the matter. In
the meantime the people can go on lo
cating the building to suit their no
tion, just as they have been doing.
